A rather random choice for today’s word – there are actually no monkeys living in Slovenian forests. You may find a few in the zoo in Ljubljana, though. While “opičjak” is formally a male monkey, it is used only if one really wants to emphasize the sex – typically “opica” is used instead.
Opica je splezala na drevo in pojedla banano. (A monkey climbed on a tree and ate a banana.)
Opica je pobegnila iz živalskega vrta. (The monkey escaped from the zoo.)
Anita, nebodiopica in me pustiprimiru! (Anita, stop being a copycat and leave me alone! – “opica” is someone who uncritically copies a behavior or action of someone else.)
